Entropiq bring in mir

After more than six months on the sidelines, Nikolay "⁠mir⁠" Bityukov finds a new home at Entropiq.

Entropiq have announced that they have brought mir out of inactivity, following the expiry of his contract with Spirit. The 26-year-old replaces Viktor "⁠Lack1⁠" Boldyrev in the main roster in the first change the team has undergone since its inception in early 2021.

mir might've been out of action for half a year following Spirit's overhaul in October of 2021, but his form was incredible during the stint with the Russian team, averaging a 1.20 rating across 517 maps played.

mir is back in action

Entropiq's coach Dmitry "⁠hooch⁠" Bogdanov is convinced that mir is exactly what his team needs to break past the plateau they reached. Aside from a couple of weeks when they peaked at No. 9 in the world, Entropiq has been stuck in the top 20 area, with a big achievement still lacking.

"I am very happy that we managed to get mir on our team. Nikolay is a world-class player with an incredible history, and I am convinced that together we will achieve further success," is what hooch said about the signing.

"Nikolay is undoubtedly a great CS:GO player who we have been following for a long time," Entropiq's gaming director Pavel Klaban added. "We believe that he is exactly the type of player that will give our team the necessary additional firepower and that mir will be the difference maker that will help us take that one step towards titles in many tournaments."

mir will have his debut for the "black and green" in REPUBLEAGUE Season 3 shortly, as his team takes on K23 at 19:00 .

Entropiq now field the following roster:

Russia Aleksei "⁠NickelBack⁠" Trofimov
Russia Vladislav "⁠Krad⁠" Kravchenko
Russia Aleksei "⁠El1an⁠" Gusev
Russia Igor "⁠Forester⁠" Bezotecheskiy
Russia Nikolay "⁠mir⁠" Bityukov

Said this on a thread months ago here. He was being listed as a sub for entropiq in multiple events and after not getting to the major and missing IEM DALLAS was more than obvious lack1 would be leaving. he was the underperformer and also the only not-russian guy.

Been waiting for this move since it got leaked on HLTV Confirmed several weeks ago. Great move imo, Entropiq seems to be lacking firepower against top teams, now they have a trio of El1an Forester Mir who is deffo top 10 potential. Hopefully lack1 finds a new home just as good as Entropiq. Best of luck boys, and hopefully you win something of importance now with Mir. Mir's debut in 5 mins is going to be LIT

not a bad pick! mir is a strong player. hopefully he syncs well with rest the team.
2022-06-09 21:18
insane pickup tbh, but i hope mir will play together with Entropiq, i read a tweet saying that mir was too hard to work with and that he disrespects IGL's decisions when he disagrees with it. if he is working towards a better team mentality then entropiq are ready to be a top 10 team without a doubt. PS: mir was insane in 2021 even with these teamwork problems in Spirit, possibly the best entry fragger in CIS by a mile, one of the best in the world, if entropiq is able to make him behave and respect their IGL they could be a dangerous team for sure.
